Spartan Mambo took 3rd place this past weekend at the finals of the JK Social salsa competition held in Los Angeles. The finals were a culmination of 4 qualifier competitions, with teams such as Alma Latina Dance Company from Mexico and Clave y Tumbao from LA competing for the championship.
The competition was a great practice competition for the team as we prepare for the Collegiate Salsa Open next week. Thanks everyone for the support!
Our team is excited to be competing at the JK Social next week! We will be competing in the Amateur teams division against other teams for California, for a chance to win the $1000 prize! Wish us luck!
Congratulations to Arianna Gibbs & Royce Roco from Spartan Mambo, who won the annual Jack & Jill competition at the SLO Salsa Exchange this past weekend! In a Jack & Jill competition, dancers are paired off with a random partner and freestyle to salsa, bachata, and other music. Good job to all the competitors from SJSU who made it to the finals!
